I've heard quite a few people say that. While I am NOT on the bandwagon of people who think they stopped being good in 77 I definitely enjoy Jerry's voice before it started going down hill in 78. I understand what you're saying but in the case of Wharf Rat for example, no way is anything going to top say, for example, the version on Skull and Roses ( one of the very first ) where he nails those long notes.

Just my preference.

I dunno, I don't have the actual show that one is from to compare. At least not that part of the show. It's the April 71 Fillmore run I think. He nailed quite a few others around then though. Which show was it frome? maybe I do have it.

either way it's a phenominal peice of music. One of the first songs and versions that really showed me why the band was so special

I think a great example of this comes on a tune from the JGB, Gomorrah. I have some versions from 76 or 77 and he nails it vocally(not an easy thing to do because the tune doesn't flow) then i listen to the version off the JGB live disc How sweet it is and it's night and day.

Love Garcia's voice late '82 through the end of '84.
Seriously... It's just got the emotion. I love my early Dead too, but I find his voice 'whispery'. After the coma it changed..period. Saw 'em 'till the end, rarely listen to anything after '86, mainly because of the vocals.
Different strokes...
